Acid Betty is the stage name of Jamin Ruhren, a drag performer from Brooklyn, New York. She is one of 12 contestants to compete on the eighth season of RuPaul's Drag Race.

Drag name origin

Her drag name simply began as "Acid", and her last name came from her love of 1950s pin-up model, Betty Page.


  • At 37, Acid is season eight's oldest queen.
  • In her "Meet the Queens" video, Acid said she would choose to be best friend's with season three winner, Raja because she is a "bitch".
  • She cites Leigh Bowery as one of her influences.
  • Acid was given what many fans call "the bitch edit" during her run on the show.
  • In her entrance Acid is using a can of smoke as a spray can, as used in Hairspray on Broadway.
  • Acid Betty met Bob The Drag Queen at a New York City party in 2011.
  • At the reunion Acid had a small fight with fellow drag queen Trixie Mattel who said ‘’In Untucked, did you or did you not came for me? I will take my answer after the show in the parking lot''
  • She appeared on season 5 of Project Runway.

On the show

Acid is known for her high concept, extravagant runway looks

Acid Betty is often involved in many conflicts/arguments as shown in the episode Bitch Perfect when she continuously argues with Chi Chi DeVayne, and Thorgy Thor points that out frequently.

Betty is often seen stirring drama throughout her run on the show, for example in the episode New Wave Queens, when Team Dragometry (Chi Chi DeVayne, Derrick Barry and Naysha Lopez) are conflicted in their decisions for their group, Acid suggests ideas which are a clear attempt to put them in the bottom.

She came high in the first three challenges of the season and safe in the fourth episode, however during Snatch Game, her impersonation of Nancy Grace fell flat and she had to lip sync for her life. She lost out to Naomi Smalls and was therefore eliminated in eighth place.
